  Dumaguete City

The City of Dumaguete is a city in the Philippines
province of Negros Oriental.

The city is nicknamed The City of Gentle People.
"Dumaguete" was coined from the Visayan word "daggit" which means "to snatch". Because of the frequent marauding attacks of the pirates on this once coastal town, and the power to attract and keep her visitors for good, the word "dumaguet" was coined, meaning "to swoop".  

Dumaguete is worth to visit. Dumaguete, blessed to have the most beautiful natural formations like enchanting lakes, falls, clear beaches, natural parks, and many other places – a gift from nature. Aside from that, you can also go to man-made resorts like pools, leisure parks, retreat houses, and many more similar places to go.

These enchanting places to visit are not too far away from the heart of the City. Some may be as close as two kilometers for the hot spring sourced pools of Valencia down to some forty kilometers for the beaches of the Apo Island.

Nearest to Downtown:
El Oriente Beach Resort
Santa Monica Beach Resort
South Sea Beach Resort

One of my favorite place in Dumaguete is Valencia...
so simple, so quiet, I just fell in love with the place
on my first visit.

I took this on my first visit...using my Nokia Phone.
